Attempted to wash yeast for the first time following Bernie Brewers sticky. I harvested it down to a 1 pint canning jar and I ended up with about 3/16" of yeast sitting on 3/4" of trub. Is this too much trub for it to sit on and will it affect the flavor of my next batch when I use it? Thanks

Don

I would wash it again...Wyeast recommends always washing yeast twice.
